Anatomy of An Edit – From 1st Draft to Submission

This presentation is a 10-step road map any writer can follow from their novel’s first draft (their first or their twenty-first project!) to submission to agents or editors. It touches on "big picture" items like character arc, plot, pacing, and theme. Suggestions for critique partners/groups and free resources for writers are included. It may be helpful to writers who are active critique partners and want to take their group to the next level.

Anne Marie grew up in Aurora, Colorado. She attended the University of Colorado for a BA in English Literature, where she fell in love with folklore and myths from around the world. She adores languages, great white sharks, and the impossible. Her work usually includes two of those three things. She edits for Swoon Romance, Month9Books (YA), and Tantrum Books (MG).

You've poured your heart and soul into the manuscript for your book or story -- but your work is just beginning. Now your task is to polish your work until it shines. In this workshop, award- winning author Cindi Myers will show you some techniques and tips for examining your work with a critical eye, spotting flaws and fixing them, strengthening your story and fine-tuning your prose until you've made it the best it can be.

Cindi Myers became one of the most popular people in eighth grade when she and her best friend wrote a torrid historical romance and passed the manuscript around among friends. Fame was short-lived, alas; the English teacher confiscated the manuscript and suggested they should spend more time brushing up on grammar and spelling. Since then, Cindi has written more than 50 published novels. Over 500,000 copies of her books have been sold around the world, and her books have been translated into more than a dozen languages. She was the 2005 Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers Writer of the Year. Her 2012 release, The View From Here, won the Colorado Book Award for genre fiction. Her most recent releases are The Mountain Between Us (sequel to The View From Here) and Rocky Mountain Revenge When she’s not writing, Cindi enjoys skiing, hiking, camping, gardening, knitting, quilting and of course, reading. She lives in the mountains of Colorado with her husband and two spoiled dogs.
